When should I come to Tuscany? Tuscany is magic all year round, but
certainly the ideal moments are springtime and fall, when the temperature is mild and days are long enough to enjoy them fully. In summer normally the sun shines and it’s very hot, so if you want to avoid heat the best periods to come are from March to May and from September to December. From February days start to get longer, temperature in winter goes from 0° to 15° Celsius, the coldest month is normally January, the hottest are July and August, when we reach the 30°/°35° Celsius or even more. During the fall season (September to November) the colors of the countryside change into yellow-orange, so it’s really beautiful to enjoy the Tuscan hills in this moment. But if you want to swim and lay on the beach then come for sure in summer (June to August), beaches in Tuscany are among the most beautiful of Italy!
Where can I eat in Florence? The center is full of restaurant, bars, cafè, and little places where you can grab a “panino”, a gelato or a filled “schiacciata”. If you prefer exotic food, there are many ethnic restaurant as well. On my Instagram page liveintuscanytours you can see some of the places that I prefer in Florence.
How long should I stay in Florence? I suggest to plan at least 4 days in Florence to visit the town, enjoy the museums, and explore a little bit of the countryside… but if you book one week holiday just in Tuscany, I’m sure you won’t be bored of it, there is so much to visit!
What can I visit besides Florence? There is plenty of choice of things to do while staying in Florence or in the surrounding: take an excursion to the Chianti area, visit Lucca, Siena, Arezzo or Pisa which are just about 1 hour by car or train, plan a visit to a little charming town such as Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, or a ride into the Val d’Orcia…. It all depends on how long you will decide to stay with us! For other suggestions please send me an email!
